The soft crackle of the waves, the horizon bathed in a gentle glow, and a couple awaiting a new chapter in their lives. As a photographer, capturing these moments is what makes my job truly rewarding.
The Magical Backdrop of Sant Martí d'Empúries for a Maternity Photoshoot
A Brief History of Sant Martí d'Empúries: A Top Choice for Maternity Photoshoots in Costa Brava
Located within the municipality of L'Escala on the Costa Brava, the history of Sant Martí d'Empúries is a rich tapestry dating back to ancient times. Originally, it was the site of the Greek city of Emporion, founded in the 6th century BC. By the 1st century BC, the Romans had made their mark, renaming it Emporiae. Over time, as the Roman town grew in stature, the original Greek city receded into the annals of history. Centuries on, a medieval village rose on the landscape of Sant Martí d'Empúries, retaining its significance through changing times. Today, it's revered not just for its compelling historical and archaeological legacy but for its scenic beauty and captivating sea views. A place where history melds seamlessly with natural splendor, making it an unforgettable backdrop for any event.
A New Day Begins: The Dawn of a Maternity Photoshoot in Costa Brava
While many might be drawn to Sant Martí d'Empúries for its history, for Carmen and Germán, it was the ideal backdrop for their maternity photoshoot. Their bond, evident in each frame, mirrored the timeless beauty of the surroundings. With the dawn casting a rosy hue, the couple's joy and anticipation were palpable.
Capturing Raw Emotion
One of the highlights was when the sun edged above the horizon, its reddish hue illuminating the couple standing in the water, facing each other. A symbolic representation of a new dawn, a new phase in their lives.
To top off this already enchanting scene, Bimba and Lola, the couple's adorable dogs, made their star appearances, adding an extra layer of warmth and family feel to the shoot.
The Technical Bits
Gear-wise, the shoot mainly leveraged a Canon mirrorless R6 camera. The Sigma 70-200 tele lens, a 35mm, and occasionally a 50mm were my go-to choices. I also employed diffuser filters for a special touch and some shots even made use of a GoPro 11.
Why This Shoot Was Special
Reflecting on the shoot, it whisked me back to my early days as a photographer, especially to the maternity session of my partner, which marked my journey's inception. Every sunrise shoot has its challenges - mainly the limited window to capture the soft sun - but the results, as evident, are always worth it.
